Does my Dog need to stay on a Leash in Emerald Isle?

What are the pet policies in Emerald Isle NC?
According to the Town of Emerald Isle’s latest Beach Regulations, “Dogs are permitted on the beach strand but must be kept on a leash. Dog excrement must be collected and removed from the beach strand.” There are plenty of trash can containers along the beach strand located at every public beach access. Our tip? Bring pet waste bags with you. There are great options of clip-on waste bag containers that you can attach to your dog’s leash.
